Haydn the seven last words of christ, hob. xx:2

An instrumental ‘oratorio’ Haydn wrote his Seven Last Words in 1786/87 for Good Friday devotions in Cádiz. The task of composing a purely instrumental  ‘oratorio’ consisting of seven contemplative slow movements was by no means an easy one; but the outcome was a work of sublime nobility, which in Haydn’s own transcription for string quartet has enjoyed unfailing popularity ever since.
